Enabling High-Performance IT with DevOps

As organizations create increasingly complex software applications, IT development teams evolved their software creation practices for more flexibility, moving from waterfall models to agile or lean development practices.

Today, DevOps designates a set of tools, processes, best practices and corporate management guidelines that make an IT organization more agile and more efficient. While the software tools and practices promoted by DevOps practitioners are well understood, rigid infrastructures reduce the benefits and hinders the application of agile methods.

Join Amazon Web Services Premier Partner, 2nd Watch, for a live webinar to learn more about how to get the right approach to DevOps and Containers in the cloud.

  • Application Modernization: How to Boost Your Bottom Line - Panel Discussion Recorded: Nov 12 2020 35 mins
    2nd Watch: Ken Weinreich, Director, Engineering & Joey Yore, Principal Consultant, New Relic: Federico Lara, CTO
    IT leaders today are faced with significant challenges - supporting remote workers, increased cyber security threats, implementing new technology to improve IT efficiency, and the growth and dependence on cloud computing.

    Many times, migrations to public cloud are based on the infrastructure currently running in an organization's data center and do not take advantage of the enhanced features in the cloud. The sooner you start thinking about Optimization and Application Modernization, ideally prior to a migration, the more efficiently your environment will run and the more cloud waste can be eliminated, resulting in lower costs and improved performance.

    How is this accomplished? Unfortunately, there is no “easy button” to evolving your cloud environment. It begins with a shift in thinking. Traditional cloud savings methods are still very important, and if you take those same concepts and apply them up the stack, you can achieve more efficiencies and position yourself well for the future.

    Join 2nd Watch and New Relic for a fun, interactive, in-depth discussion around the methodologies used to obtain true Application Modernization and Optimization across all aspects of your Cloud Environment.
  • How Business & IT Should Think About Cloud Migration Recorded: Oct 28 2020 30 mins
    Ian Willoughby, Chief Architect - 2nd Watch
    A successful digital transformation means alignment between business and IT. We see a lack of support between business units when there is a perceived opposition of the other’s goals.

    Greater alignment means achieving speed, security, operational efficiency, cost controls and governance while providing greater value to the business and end customers.

    Common goals among business and IT units is a critical component for success during a digital transformation. Come explore with us the most effective way to get there.

  • Keep Me Honest: The Ins and Outs of Compliance Standards Recorded: Jul 29 2020 60 mins
    Victoria Geronimo, Security & Compliance Product Manager, Stefana Muller, Sr. Product Manager
    The first step in choosing a security assessor for your cloud environment is deciding what standard you need to evaluate against.

    Many clients tell us their last assessor certified their environment as “officially HIPAA compliant” or something similar. But this represents a fundamental misunderstanding of what basic security and privacy laws even mean – no private organization can certify any environment as “HIPAA compliant!”

    This webinar will help guide security, privacy, and compliance stakeholders to some fundamentals about the different cloud compliance standards, laws, and regulations. Additionally, we’ll cover some of the most common compliance myths we see when working with clients. Lastly, we’ll map compliance standards to different industry verticals. Discover how ”compliance” (or at least an OK from the regulators) is achieved and the red flags to look out for when selecting your next security assessor.

  • Deep Dive into DevSecOps Recorded: Apr 28 2020 49 mins
    Victoria Geronimo, Product Manager - 2nd Watch & Cindy Blake, Sr. Product Marketing Manager - Security - GitLab
    DevSecOps is a misnomer. Smashing Security in between Dev and Ops is the wrong way to think about optimizing your DevOps + Security pipeline. Many believe security is the blocker before getting their applications out to production. Owned by some distant, unapproachable team, security can seem like the new deep divide with a 'throw it over the wall' mentality. Instead, Security must be sprinkled throughout the DevOps cycle, taught from the beginning when developing best practices and automating compliant infrastructure, and owned by both DevOps and Security, working as a team.

    In this webinar, we will dive deep into a sample DevSecOps culture and pipeline and show precisely how Security is not the blocker some make them out to be but an enabler to a positive customer and internal experience. Using the GitLab Secure and Defend solution, we’ll highlight where and how the protections of SAST, DAST, vulnerability scanning, license management, compliance management, and more can be a part of your development process and not a blocker.

    Additionally, we’ll identify where both DevOps and Security teams can knowledge share in order to best aid each other toward a more efficient, and more secure, pipeline and product.

    We will focus on a fictional company, specific challenges they faced, and the things they did to address those challenges from Threat Modeling and Risk Classification, Security and DevOps Education, Automated Policy Enforcement, Secrets Management, Vulnerability Scanning, SAST and DAST, monitoring, and more.

    We'll step through the DevOps cycle and expose exactly where Security comes into play and how many of the steps/process/requirements can be automated to eliminate toil.
  • Managed DevOps (Yes, this is a thing) Recorded: Apr 8 2020 60 mins
    Stefana Muller, Sr. Product Manager
    If you’re in a development or operations role, you probably gawked at this title. The truth is, having some other company manage your “DevOps” is an insult to the term. However, bear with us while we put out this scenario:

    What if you don’t have a team that can manage all your tools that enable you to adopt DevOps methods?

    Why should you have to spend time managing the tools you use, instead of developing and operating your application?

    These are key reasons to consider using a DevOps platform managed by experts. In this talk, we’ll cover “What is Managed DevOps”, the tooling, the implementation, and what you should consider before choosing your pipeline. We’ll have experts from GitLab and 2nd Watch share how an end-to-end solution can meet the needs of large enterprises.

    You won’t want to miss the opportunity to laugh along with us as we share how we “Do all the DevOps”.
